Waipoua Lodge, Northland, New Zealand
Nestled on a ridge overlooking the vast Waipoua Forest, where iconic kauri trees have been living for 3,000 years, Waipoua Lodge offers luxury accommodation in an original homestead surrounded by native forest and pasture stretching as far as the eye can see.
As well as award winning hospitality, the purpose of a stay at the lodge is to experience the Waipoua Forest. A forest where only native bird song breaks a deafening silence whilst you stand in awe, surrounded by trees that have been living here since bronze age man.
With only four luxury guest suites we offer somewhere very special to relax and unwind whilst indulging yourself in some delicious cuisine, personal and warm hospitality, plus of course spectacular scenery of the unspoilt natural ancient Kauri Coast environment.
